The homework consists of two parts: paper homework and MyMathLab.
Paper homework should be handed in before the start of Wednesday lecture.
It must be legible, and written in connected sentences that explains what you are doing.
Just the answer (whether correct or not) is not enough.
ease put your name on every page and staple the pages together.
Homework should be handed in on time, late homework will not be graded.
Though it is fine to discuss the HW problems with others, you must always write up
the solutions in your own words. Copying will be penalized. Of course, in the exams
you must work on your own: no calculators, textbooks etc will be allowed.
MyMathLab homework is done online and is graded automatically.
